Released in 2013, BMW has heavily pushed the R nineT as a blank canvas for customizers to work from. Back in August, BMW Motorrad showed of a number of machines that had been worked on by some of the best customizers in Japan. Now, BMW has teamed up with world renowned customizers, Roland Sands Design to create a range of new accessories that bolt on to the R nineT – little mechanical aptitude required.
Some of the parts on offer include valve covers that also offer crash protection ($949.95), new gauge housings for your speedometer and tachometer ($399.95) and for something a little more affordable, RSD bar ends ($59.95). Added up, the currently known range of Roland Sands Designs accessories would set you back around $3,200 – or about 21 per cent of the cost of an actual BMW R nineT.
The parts will be available for delivery at the end of February 2015. They will be purchased by Roland Sands Design’s dealers (www.rolandsands.com/purchase-info) and can also be purchased by participating BMW Motorrad dealers.
